And she said, 'You should just start performing at different clubs.' She wasn't like, 'No, this isn't a good choice for you.' She was like, 'Great, you should do that.'

    • Vanessa: (on her impression of Miley Cryus)I took a character workshop a couple of summers ago where we worked on impressions, and that's when I first started working on it, I felt like she was such a great personality. She's a fun person to do.

    • Vanessa: (On her first day working on Saturday Nigh Live) My first day of work, I remember meeting people and I was so star-struck, But I had to act like it was a normal thing to meet these people. I couldn't ask for autographs of the people I was going to work with.
